Inspired by the article in NYTimes “The Real Cost of Cheap Shirts", I wanted to make a sample illustration but striking image.
Medium: Pen and ink, Photoshop
The main purpose of this illustration is to call attention to the poor working conditions of the fabric workers in Bangladesh, whose income solely depends on this job.
Looking closer, the shirt is made up of women workers drawn repeatedly as a pattern. This pattern creates a texture to an overarching image of a shirt.
